Congrats to the Buckeyes!

Sad times in Oregon as the Ohio State Buckeyes beat the University of Oregon Ducks in the championship game.  I'm still proud of the great year we had.  I don't subscribe to "winning is everything" or I'd have given up stamping long ago--LOL!  Anyway, it means I lost the wager with my friend, Maria, so I owe her a little package & a card.  I found the Stampin' Celebration Blog at the end of last year & wanted to play again. The sketch was just what I needed. 
Pulled out my almost never used old Hero Arts wooden alphabet stamps & white embossed them on crimson cardstock. Hopefully this is close to the right crimson for OSU.  Their other color is gray so I used more of the cardstock left from the card in my previous post & stamped the Studio G sentiment in Memento Gray Flannel.  The MFT Fishtail Flags were splattered with white paint using a water brush--symbolizing confetti.  Printed the picture of a football on photo paper, trimmed it out & mounted it with foam tape.  I used a COPIC marker to color the little wooden embellishment which is attached over some twine.  
Hope Maria enjoys my salute to Ohio State. The governors of the 2 states also had a wager with bigger gifts on the line, but doubt a handmade card is included--LOL! This card is going to Maria (& her hubby) & works for a guy so I'm entering the challenge at SSS Wednesday.Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you also for the pocket calendar and die cuts...so sweet! And, of course, you outdid yourself with the fabulous card! The red, which we call (scarlet) is close enough for me...hehehe! I just had to show my husband, Randy, the card and he says..."Two thumbs up!" Thank you so much! It was a great game between the two teams...lots to be proud of for both teams!!!
